Cinnamon Creek boardwalk Eagle Project

  • Installing the boardwalk

Boy Scout Troop 55 Life scout Charley Sampson managed the construction of a boardwalk over a Cinnamon Creek Wetland area spur trail as his Eagle Scout project.  This trail connects Wolf Trap with a staircase into Cinnamon Creek Home Owners that provides a safe path between Wolf Trap and the Fairfax Gerry Connolly Cross County Trail.  PATC Wolf Trap Overseer & Friends of Wolf Trap director Mike Moran worked with Tom Burnside from Cinnamon Creek to acquire the decking & Pat McMurry from Wolf Trap for the T-shaped supports & rebar.  Rebar was used to secure the T-shaped supports in place.

The wetland area drains runoff from the Dulles Toll Road adjacent to the site.  Residents have become enthusiastic users of the spur trail & will benefit by having a mud-free path to Wolf Trap.  Cinnamon Creek plans to put an article in its newsletter about the project.
